're going to play in 33 days if this man is allowed to continue. joining me now, bob shrum, democratic strategist, senior adviser to the kerry and gore campaigns who also ran ted kennedy's campaign against romney in 1994. he's writing in the daily beast oig today saying romney won the debate, but it was no game changer. and jared bernstein, msnbc contributor and former chief economist for vice president joe biden. bb, let me start with you. what are your thoughts? >> first of all, romney won a victory that was a victory of performance art built on a whole set of lies. i think people have counted up to 28 to 30 lies. and i actually think the president deserves some credit for at a couple of critical points holding romney accountable. it's a big victory to get romney to own voucher care as a replacement for medicare and the president also took romney on when he said no one over 65 will be affected because of the rebeautiful obamacare in fact as the president pointed out, seniorses will pay $600 more for prescription drugs and the medicare trust if you said will expire eight years sooner.
president is that now not as young man from arkansas, bill clinton, and his challenger that year is bob dole. did bob dole really beat incumbent bill clinton in their first debate? actually, no. this is the exception. bill clinton won that first debate. here's what the headlines looked like the next day. president proves unflappable facing dole barbs. so the fifth time that we did this as a country, new result. the incumbent president did clearly defeat his challenger in their first debate. first time that ever happened in the country. that moves the tally for incumbent presidents trying to win first debates against their challenger to 1-4. so next one, 2004. george w. bush is the incumbent president. his challenger is this guy, massachusetts senator john kerry. remember at the democratic convention this year when john kerry gave the bang-up speech about mitt romney learning everything he knew about russia by watching rocky 4, and his overseas trip actually being a blooper reel and all that stuff? this this great barn burner of a very funny speech by john kerry. everybody said, afterwards, w
and myself. it's about something bigger than that. bill: good morning you, bob. you believe romney has to be aggressive without looking desperate. explain. >> he has got to land some punches and show a lot of energy. i'm sure he will have a lot of stats against the president. i'm sure you will heart last 43 months we have had unemployment more than 8%. but he's got to be aggressive and come pout swinging. this is the most important night of mitt romney's life. bill: he talked about something bigger than that, and that's a path forward for america. he talked about a choice. you can go one way or come follow me. >> i think the president will be staying the course. saying the economy is getting better and also defining mitt romney. he has to make this about a choice, not a referendum on his first term. bill: if there is a surprise what do you think it might be? >> i think romney has to throw the president off stride. he has got to get under his skin. maybe he mentions president obama's penchant for playing golf when the economy is ouring. bill: does one have more to lose than the other? >
of the ticket in this case. >> in terms of the soothing, dana, bob dole was very soothing to mr. romney or he wrote over this weekend an op ed piece that i'm sure was intended to be soothing. i certainly wouldn't have liked it if i was the nominee. but his intent, i'm sure, was to be soothing because he wrote no one aspires to be defeated -- a defeated presidential candidate. but then he went on further and he argued that there is light at the end of the tunnel for dole that was an improbable career, pitching visa, duncan donuts and viagra. and he goes on to say, the greatest of life blessings cannot be counted in electoral votes. so he's telling mr. romney, i assume, don't worry about it. you can do what i did and i guess that's soothing. >> it's soothing in a many of speaking but there's a crucial different here and that is that bob dole in 1996 fought the good fight. but, look, the economy by then was booming. nobody really gave him a chance of winning. what is happening here is you have romney losing a race that everybody thought he was perfectly capable of winning. so if that is indeed w

, their story coming up. >> gretchen: where was the president's head in this debate. bob woodward also has a theory kind of like al gore, dick morris is here to react. >> a lot of people played drinking games in the debate. they took a shot when someone said a certain word. word for obama was jobs and romney was medicare . jim lehrer was but -- but. he got confused. >> steve: poor guy. >> brian: 78. ♪ ♪ [ clock ticking ] [ male announcer ] there's a better way... v8 v-fusion. vegetable nutrition they need, fruit taste they love. could've had a v8... ♪ >> brian: hey, glad you are up. why was president obama so off of his game in the debate. journalist bob woodword had a theory on shared on the radio on kilmeade and friends. >> something happened intelligence report, who knows the things that can happen in a president's life that distract him. he was distracted. it was not an engaged obama. i think as the onion gets peeled on this. we'll find that something happened in his presidential or personal life that distracted him. >> brian: could personal problems be the reason and blame why t
pitcher bob gibson struck out a world series record 17 batters. in game one against the tigers and what a series that was. 1968 was the year the pitcher. the detroit's mcclain won 31 games that year, but bob gibson beat him twice in that same series. the intimidating writing was the 22 game winner with 1.12 era. the cardinals went on to win game 1 and gibson struck out 35 bat increase that series, also a major league record. the tigers won it all in seven long games. these days, bob gibson still regarded as one of the most dominant pitchers of his time, but a hall of famer throug

-- talk based on a paper i have done with judge robert bork, a one to a knowledge mary ellen and bob jr. in the audience. this presentation and the paper it is based upon which i think will be available today if it is not already available on the web site and also on the criterion website, was commissioned by google but the views that are expressed in the conclusion that are reached in the paper are solely those of the judge and myself. the title of the paper presents this question of the chicago school perspective on questions of search and google. i thought before we die into issues -- dive into issues, we would have some antitrust analysis. i associate to kabul school with -- and so should the school with -- in taking a degree of their, discovered economics. and of course by the late 70's, the writings of the school started influencing the supreme court agreed deal. -- a great deal. i think some of the distinguishing characteristics of the chicago school of antitrust analysis with horizontal conspiracy cartels, it has a very hard-line attitude. cartels are serious source of injury to
: i'm reading the bob word ward book and paints not a pretty picture of what's going on at the white house. maybe they don't know what they're do. let's factor in the possibility of a total imcompetence. which is terrible! >> right. it's one of those things that they either knew what they were doing or they did not know what they were doing. which is worse? >> gretchen: they also had the videotape situation to use as a cover ostensibly tore a considerable amount of time. and also you have to factor in that the average american is not paying attention to foreign policy and otherwise on a daily basis like we are on this couch and people who typically watch fox news. they're not. so what is in their mind for foreign policy is that president obama took out osama bin laden. >> i don't know. i think that people are paying enough attention across the board to look at this and you could even look at some of the headlines in main stream media and say, they certainly screwed up on september 11 on the anniversary and then they didn't have their story straight and they still won't admit they di
: straight ahead on this thursday, last week bob massi helped hundreds of our viewers in florida struggling with their mortgages and he's not done yet. he's coming up next. >> gretchen: then hey, watch where you're going. what in the world was this guy thinking hey! did you know that honey nut cheerios has oats that can help lower cholesterol? and it tastes good? sure does! wow. it's the honey, it makes it taste so... well, would you look at the time... what's the rush? be happy. be healthy. >> brian: bob massi went to treasure island, florida to help americans hit by the foreclosure crisis directly. today bob is back to help you and address some of the feedback he received. welcome back. how did it go? >> thanks, brian. it was great. the people really were wonderful. had a great turnout. everybody was so cooperative. people love fox news. they love "fox & friends" and what we're trying to do, so overall, a lot of good information, lot of great questions and it was good. i could not thank you guys enough for allowing me to do it and i thank the people for treasure island how gracious they w
, so thank you to bob mcdonald for the all the work he's doing, a great governor. [cheers and applause] and you may know that a couple of nights ago we had a debate, you may have gotten the chance to see that. [cheers and applause] and it was a good experience, i think, for me, for the president, for people who watched. it was a debate of substance. we talked about the issues that america faces. i got the chance to ask the president some questions that people, i think people across the country have wanted to ask the president such as why it was that when america was needing jobs so badly, he was pushing for obamacare instead of working to get jobs for the american people. [cheers and applause] got the chance to ask him why there's still 23 million americans that are out of work or stopped looking for work, struggling to find good full-time jobs. i got the chance to ask him why it is the middle class is so buried in this country. incomes have gone down, prices of gasoline have doubled, prices of food and clothing and almost everything else you buy has gone up. people in the middle class

, bob. we did. got it. >>> a rough comparison for mitt romney. jack cafferty is following that. he is joining us now. jack? >> wolf, something here that ought to give camp romney heartburn. there is a poll out that finds the republican candidate for prident, mitt romney, is less popular than george w. bush. bloomberg news did this survey, shows the former president with a favorability rating of 46% compared to 43% for mitt romney. bush gets an unfavorable rating of 49%. romney gets 50%. bush's favorables are higher than joe biden paul ryan and the republican party in general. it is well known romney's favorability numbers are lower than the president's many believe romney, mega-rich businessman, who once tied the family dog to the roof of his car, doesn't seem able to connect with a lot of ordinary voters out will but less popular than george w. bush, that's cold. for start i, romney and his campaign have done everything in their power to make americans forget about george w. bush in his eight years as president. romney avoids mentioning the form president's name. bush was nowhere
is for bob menendez. >> you say you support a comprehensive solution including revenues and cuts in spending. can you name one wasteful program. to successfully eliminated while you have been in congress? >> the f 22. this is something that even the pentagon did not want. the administration did not want. there are those who are advocating for it. i voted against the f22. i voted on a different alternative fighter engine that was not necessary as well. that was cut. those are 2 examples of programs that were cut. what i do not want to do is what my opponent says -- he basically embraces the lion budget. what does that budget to do? it ends medicare as we know it. makes it a voucher. privatizes social security. dramatically cut assistance to education in our country. as someone who grew up, the first of my country to go to program, i want loans to be out there and keeping student loan interest rates low so that everyone can achieve an education. it is very important to do this and a balanced way. >> one i am there we are going to have a joe kyrillos -- i will work on end compromise along the w

ask you one question. the last time we had an i incumbent candidate that was challenged, ignoring bob dole's attempt to bring it on kind of. listen to this in their debate. >> mr. president, what do you say to senator dole's point that this election is about keeping one's word? >> when i ran for president, i said we could cut the deficit in half and we cut it by 60%. i said our economic plan would produce 8 minullion jobs and we created 10 million jobs. >> i can only tell thaw i don't think senator dole is too old to be president. it's the age of his idea that i question. >> abby, if the president ignores him and goes as clinton did in '96, does that neutralize what you think is a good debater in mr. romney? >> that's exactly what mr. obama has to do. he has to remain calm and look like he is the commander in chief that he is for the united states and if he can -- if obama can be just who he is, there's no way that romney can get the narrative that he actually wants. but if obama can be himself, then i think that he will be just fine. >> abby, neera, thanks for your time and i think y

what you have to say. bob is in new york city on the democratic line. caller: i have two questions for the candidates. why, in this day and age, are women's reproductive rights even being called up? are they aware that in this century, at this late date -- why are we going back and rehashing this? an issue that has been dealt with and should not even be on the table? also, i would want to know possibly, and i will vote for the president, and from him i would want to know why -- i thought that his calling when he came to office was to get on top of wall street, get on top of that problem with the big banks, with all the crazy financing that even some of the experts cannot understand. again, i will vote for him, maybe he will do this in the next term, deal with the big banks and the issues surrounding why they have not been regulated or clamped down on in a meaningful way so that we can go forward. if we are going to talk about certainty, we need to know that the banks will not be falling back into the abyss that they got us into before. host: richard, republican line, hello. caller:
and that is worth pointing out. >> remember bob shogan of the l.a. times, howard? i once tried to low ball him with carter saying, carter would lose something coming up, i think the general election -- no the primary. he said, i've heard people say they're going to lose and they've still lost. how far can you low ball? just keep saying, my guy's going to blow this and they end up blowing it. this idea of sandbagging and low-bawling going on the past couple of days? >> it's ridiculous. it's sort of the option verse of the ridiculousness version of professional wrestling where the managers say they're going to clobber the other guy. i take this -- i take this about as seriously. but to go back to a point you and chuck were making, the economy is still such and the views of the president's handling of the economy are still such that despite all of the mistakes he's made, despite the terrible convention, despite the bad luck, despite the wooden candidacy, despite many people thinking he doesn't understand them or he's a fraud, mitt romney is very much in the ball game here. he's very much in the b
